Community support and leadership are crucial to raising much-needed funds to assist children, youth and families in Niagara. Thank you!

Every child should have the opportunity to learn, to laugh, and to play. and, every young person should be nurtured to become a successful, contributing adult.

By doing some planning today and establishing a legacy gift (bequest, life insurance) or making a gift of securities (stocks, bonds, or shares), you can invest in our children’s future and help ensure that Family & Children’s Services Niagara will have the resources to continue to protect and support children, youth, and families.

And, not only can these types of planned gifts to the FACS Foundation help you achieve your charitable and philanthropic goals, they may also help with your financial objectives by lowering your income, capital gains, or estate taxes. We encourage you to speak with a financial or legal professional today!

Each year, generous individuals, corporations, and organizations donate to send children and youth raised in the care of FACS Niagara to summer camps. This creates “Summer Smiles” for those vulnerable children — most of whom would not have the life-changing opportunity to enjoy a week-long overnight- or day-camp.

You can donate directly to create Summer Smiles through our secure, online form or you can organize your own event or activity that raises funds to send kids to camp. Examples include:

  • Barbeques — in the community or workplace,
  • Car Washes,
  • Office Coffee Breaks,
  • Lemonade Stands,
  • Zoom-Chats,
  • Virtual Events, or
  • Other creative events!

We are grateful for the support received from these type of activities or programs!

Please contact the Development Office at 905-937-7731 ext. 3314 or at foundation@facsniagara.on.ca with your idea, activity, or event to create Summer Smiles!
